DIRECTIONS

  • Slit the ancho chiles carefully down one side, leaving the chiles intact. Discard all the seeds. Heat the canola oil in a skillet until not hot but not smoking. Add the chiles and fry for 1 minute or until they puff. Drain on paper towels.
  • Discard all but 1 or 2 tablespoons of the oil in the skillet.
  • Sauté the onion in the reserved oil in the skillet. Add the brown sugar, orange juice, vinegar, water, salt and peppercorns to the skillet. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat. Simmer for 30 minutes. Pour over the chiles in a bowl. Marinate in the refrigerator for several hours to 12 hours.
  • For guacamole, combine all guacamole ingredients.
  • Drain chiles and spoon guacamole into them. Garnish with cilantro.
